Fri, 09/13/2019 - 1:32pmWe would like to thank you for your support of another fantastic week at Glenelg High School! Earlier in the week, we had our 9th graders working on community building and ensuring that everyone knew the importance of feeling dignified and valued at Glenelg High School. In addition, we focused on the ideals of inclusion and acceptance. Referencing the Harvard definitions (in their current research surrounding belonging and dignity), we believe inclusion to mean making others feel that they belong at all levels of relationship (including family, community and organization) and acceptance to mean that we approach all people as neither inferior or superior and create an environment where all members of our school are free from fear of being negatively judged, can interact without prejudice and bias, and believe that all elements of their individual identity (age, religion, gender, race, sexual orientation, disability, socioeconomic status, etc.) are accepted. As your school leader, I believe these areas are imperative to us being a connected community. It is my goal that we continue to develop our understanding of these ideals and live them out as a school on a daily basis.

Glenelg High School athletes, coaches, the athletic director, and the admin team love having the support of so many fans of all ages! Please remember that our youngest Gladiator fans (elementary and middle school-aged) should always attend under the supervision of an adult. Please do not drop off elementary and middle school children to be supervised by high school siblings. By ensuring the adult supervision of children under high school age, the Glenelg staff can focus on keeping all members of the community safe during these events.
